beef sukiyaki salad

japan Easy 
Jill pust her spin on a classic japanese to create a flavour-packed salad

Every cook knows the magic of onions. Slice up a couple and cook them gently and you will have a rich golden mass of sweetness. Basically whatever you make from there on in will have a deeper, richer taste because of that bed of onions. For this recipe, l've combined sweet, slow-cooked onions with everything I love about lapanese beef sukiyaki - the rare beef, the tofu, the sweet soy broth - and tu med it into a wa rm salad with noodles, instead of the traditional one-pot, cook-at-the-table dish. Swap sukiyaki’s shirataki noodles for the easier-to-find glass noodles, and you have a satisfying dinner that makes the most of a relatively small amount of meat.The trick is to combine the onion with spring onion. As the spring onion cooks down, it releases moisture and prevents the onion from browning too easily, so less oil is needed. Add some silken tofu, snow peas and sesame seeds, and it's amazing how lapanese it tastes, even though it's sort-of not.
